Akshaye Khanna made his Bollywood comeback with recently released ‘Dishoom’ where he played a baddie. Looks like he got along really well with playing a negative character. Apparently, now Akshaye has been signed to play the villain’s role in the remake of ‘Ittefaq’, the 1969 blockbuster.

“He has been signed for a key role, which wasn’t part of the original script. It has been written specifically for him. The film will go on floors in a couple of months.” a source stated to a leading publication.

The classic was directed by B.R. Chopra while the remake version will be helmed by his grandson Abhay Chopra. Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be donning the lead characters, originally played by Rajesh Khanna and Nanda.
